An alloy of 90% platinum and 10% iridium was used in 1889 to construct the International Prototype Meter and kilogram mass, kept by the International Bureau of Weights and Measures near Paris.[10] The meter bar was replaced as the definition of the fundamental unit of length in 1960 by a line in the atomic spectrum of krypton,[note 4][64] but the kilogram prototype is still the international standard of mass
Can you please expand on that concept. I don't see how it could be true, because if the meter were just a bit longer or shorter then a cubit wouldn't be 52.36cm and the connection wouldn't exist. It could pure chance that they used a length which has a pi/phi based relationship to the meter, but the probability of that is fairly slim imo.
the cubit and the meter are not related to each other.... they are BOTH related to the geometry.

Drunvalo Melchizedek wrote the Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, back in 1994 which contains this information and explains what it means to us as humans. You should check it out if your interested in expanding your knowledge of pyramids and sacred geometry.edit on 17-12-2011 by knightsofcydonia because: (no reason given)
The problem is that both π and φ are dimensionless ratios, while the answer in your relationship is not. The equality of a dimensionless equation cannot contain a dimensional unit. In other words, you plucked the units out of thin air. It might be an interesting relationship, but you need to explain where the meter or cubit value enters into the equation.
But here's the rub - you have to prove INTENT. I have shown you how it is entirely possible to unwittingly...

You imply here (I hope without realizing it) that the Ancient Egyptians knew the meter, a unit wholly invented in the year 1960 (the type of meter your using.)
